Virtual PC for Mac

Earlier software from Microsoft that enabled Windows applications to run on PowerPC-based Macs under Mac OS X up to, but not including, the G5 processor. It contained a complete version of Windows XP Home or Pro or Windows 2000 Professional that ran as a Mac application. It also allowed data to be copied back and forth between Windows and Mac, and the Mac could seamlessly connect into a Windows network and vice versa. Virtual PC was originally developed by Connectix Corporation, which was acquired by Microsoft in 2003. In 2006, Virtual PC for Mac was discontinued. See Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion and Virtual PC.
